Begonias in My Greenhouse

There are so many beautiful begonias in my greenhouse.

Begonia is a genus in the family Begoniaceae. It contains at least 1500 different plant species and numerous hybrids. They are native to Mexico, Central and South America, Asia and South Africa - regions with tropical and subtropical climates. Rhizomatous begonias are grown for their interesting and spectacular leaves. They come in an array of sizes, colors and textures, and can be small or large, smooth or veiny, decorated in bold accents of red, copper and silver or subtle shades of green. I’m certain there’s one begonia, if not more, that could inspire and captivate any gardener.

Enjoy these photos.
